Being a wedding photographer can be an odd job, because you’re both employee and, at least on the wedding day itself, an extra friend. And there are couples who seem to have inadvertently welcomed me into their entire friendship group! So it was that Sheena and Aaron got me on board after I’d photographed Holly and Phil, and Gemma and James’ weddings in years gone by. It’s always really lovely to see my old couples again, so it was an especially lovely touch by Sheena and Aaron to pop me on a table with them all at dinner!
And of course when these guys hired me I had a pretty good idea of what I was letting myself in for: an absolute ball of a time, because Sheena, Aaron and their mates are a seriously fun-and-loving crowd. The kind of people who show off their ‘groomsmen’ boxers at the end of the night, and send each other ‘cold feet’ packages in the morning (complete with slippers and photos).
I just hope the joy and love of the day is reflected in the photos – but I’ll leave you to be the judge of that!
